absolutely right! i know! i know!

"I am not really in a position to be asking [person] for any favors right now."
"I know. She's starting to get frantic waiting for [thing]."
"I know, I need to talk to her."
"You don't need to talk to her. What you need to do is send her an e-mail that has [thing] attached and all ready to go."

Don't be expecting much from this blog. Maybe readers could help out by, I don't know, telling knock knock jokes in the comments or something. Or their preferred answer to "Why is six afraid of seven?"

Maybe I will fill the time writing my own paper that needs to get out! I am, well maybe not, but I too am frantic.

There's more than one answer to why is six afraid of seven?

"Because seven shot a man in Reno just to watch him die."

It was Carson City, a teddy bear, and because seven had never seen stuffing before.

As the person who said the red text, I must ask: Is [thing] done? I know, I know, this is terribly [|bad quality| > “not nice”] of me, as I have [quantity > 0] [things] that are currently [number > 0] [unit > days] late. But then again, I am not a [title > “Monkey Butler”].

Mr. Maroontext: I'm not sure what exactly a Monkey Butler is, but the point of my post was that you were absolutely right to be saying I needed to get [thing] to [person] immediately. [Thing] has been sent off.

Anonymous apologizes for 1) his limited knowledge of the color wheel, and 2) his pitifully inept short-term memory.

Mr. Maroontext has had a seriously rough day and apologizes for 1) criticizing J. about [thing] when he should have been providing moral support (or whatever), 2) not adhering to the conventional “maroon” text reference which appears regularly on JFW, 3) not elaborating on exactly what constitutes a “Monkey Butler” and, finally, 4) pitifully inept short term memory for which he could not even retain/recall the color scheme to congratulate J. in the “You rock!” reply.

Monkey Butlering has taken its toll on yet another young UW employee.
